Originally published on Fronza.nl, July 8th 2017Dutch translation below Criticasters of electronic music like to fall back on the argument that dance music should not be considered ‘real’ music, because of the lack of physical instruments. Aside from the matter that plenty of dance producers love to collaborate with podium artists – think: Laurent Garnier, […]

Ghost producing: beter goed verkocht dan slecht verzonnen

Blog Fronza.nl by Marceline 1678 views

Oorspronkelijke publicatie op Fronza.nl, 3 juni 2015 Ghost producing een vies woord? Het is zo oud als de weg naar Rome, alleen heette het daar nog ghost writing: teksten voor keizers die niet zo welbespraakt waren, werden geschreven door ingehuurde professionals. Obama schijnt een uitzondering onder zijn presidentiele voorgangers te zijn omdat hij de meeste […]

2015: Review Marcelineke about Boudewijn Böhre aka DJ Ken Böhre

Published originally in Dutch in May 2015 (text below English version)   The first time I met Boudewijn Böhre aka DJ Ken Böhre, I was immediately charmed by his disarming look and great enthusiasm.

Some dance tracks immediately give a sense of sunshine. Sometimes by their title, often en mostly by their summer vibes.

Deep techno or deep house for me is rather continuous ripling, lacking huge highs or breaks. In general not very interesting for me. Dark applies in my view to […]

Every development and evolution has a beginning and a sequel. Often the start is a reaction to social matters. The dark eighties, overshadowed by economic dark perspectives, were revived by the much more hopeful nineties, an era in which the trees seemed to grow to the sky. ‘Seemed’ indeed. Because by now we’ve learned the […]

Marcy Goes Wild #9: 5 x Underworld

Marcy Goes Wild header

Believe it or not, but on some points dance doesn’t differ that much from other musical genres. In general it starts with the basis of a quadruple time – whether we’re talking about jazz, blues, rock and yes, also house. Besides this, there are similarities in perception.    The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and all […]
